“First B&B Experience Was Wonderful”
Reviewed 3 November 2010

My husband and I (along w/another couple who stayed here previously) went for a long weekend on 10/29. Everything about the B&B was great. Doug and Louise were wonderful hosts, breakfast on both days was really wonderful, the house was beautiful and the rooms were each special in their own way. Louise is a great chef and her desserts left me wanting more. I'm still tasting the cream cheese crumb we had on day one. We stayed in The Masters Chamber and my only regret was we ran out of time to light the fireplace. Our stay coincided with the Graveyard Walk and dessert following and Doug was the guide. This was an added treat that the four of us enjoyed. The location is close to lots of things to do. I would highly recommend the Cornerstone to anyone who will listen and am already eager to make plans to go back again.

Delightful Louise and Doug love what they do (and have been doing here for ten years) and it shows in even the smallest details. B & B owners should spend two nights here and LEARN!! They didn't miss a single thing, and I'm the critical fussbudget extraordinaire, believe me. The Master's Chamber was such a treat: king sized four-poster, two big comfy recliners, fireplace, lots of windows, private balcony you could actually sit on, huge bathroom. The 5-course breakfasts are to die for. Really. And my husband is a foodie from Boulder, CO! We didn't even care that it rained two of the three days we spent there. What a cook (and baker) Louise is, and Doug provides the world's best service at the breakfast table.

After reading the reviews, we decided to stay for three days at The Cornerstone Victorian B & B and were not disappointed. This is a deluxe accommodation, with loads of little extras (homemade truffles, make-up removal cloths, fancy soaps, etc.) to make sure you feel pampered. Breakfast is served from 8-9 each morning, which fit our schedule fine. Each day brought new variations in Louise’s five-course breakfasts , a disappointment as we had so enjoyed the previous day’s breakfast. Yet the new day’s meal turned out to be every bit as exceptional. Each night, we returned to an incredible dessert, definitely an uncommon treat in a B & B.
Louise and Doug were warm, friendly hosts who provided loads of information about the surrounding areas. Their home was in a perfect location for us: close to the Erie Canal Parks (biking), Blue Mountain (hiking), and the Adirondack Museum. Yet the home is still in a relatively quiet neighborhood. We went to bed with the sound of Katydids and the outdoor garden fountain, and we never noticed traffic noise.
Our room, La Belle Chamber, overlooked the gardens and was tastefully filled with antiques. I loved the room, though I will say the shower/toilet area was small: my husband and I are tall and lean so that was no problem (shaving my legs in the shower might have been a challenge). For larger guests, they may want to inquire into other rooms. The sink was in the room, which meant I had to be extra quiet in the morning not to wake my husband. It didn’t seem to be a problem, as we both slept soundly.
We walked to Gracy’s Restaurant for excellent gourmet dinners, and -- on our last day -- to Oscar’s Smoke House for vacuum-sealed German smoked sausage and brats. Had we known how terrific these sausages would be during our next two nights camping out, we definitely would have stocked up and brought home as much as possible.
We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it for anyone who likes fine food and gracious surroundings.

I recently stayed at the Cornerstone Victorian as part of a bridal party for a wedding. This charming bed and breakfast was in a perfect location for the wedding itself as well the other wedding-related errands we needed to run.

We were so busy that we weren't at the B&B for very long, but while we were there, we had an extremely comfortable room - the beds were so comfy! The jacuzzi in our room was a nice extra as well. After standing in high heels all day at the wedding, it was a treat to be able to take a warm jacuzzi bath.

The ultimate perk of staying at the Cornerstone Victorian was the breakfast that Louise and Doug served. We were there for two mornings and the breakfasts they served are truly on my top five best breakfasts ever! The food was so delicious and everything homemade! If you stay here, make sure you are hungry...I could not finish the last few courses!

We agree with the rave reviews. Doug and Louise are amazing hosts and make it all seem effortless, even the huge gourmet breakfasts served with panache (calorie counters beware, butter is not spared here). The house is beautiful, rooms are lovely and hosts couldn't be more accommodating. The only negative - not the fault of the Innkeepers - is that not much is open before Memorial Day week-end. Warrensburg itself has few tourist attractions, although there are a couple of good restaurants and an antique shop or two. In good weather, great hiking is nearby. Outlets are always open. Doug and Louise make the trip worthwhile with terrific off -season rates, warm hospitality, great breakfasts, luscious snacks and very comfortable accommodations.

My wife and I could not have found a more romantic, welcoming, and overall enchanting place to spend our Anniversary. After much searching on the internet, we landed on this place based on the amazing reviews....VERY HAPPY WE DID!!! It is close to Gore and Hunter Mountain if you want to ski and there are plenty of wonderful and quaint restaurants very near Cornerstone. The rooms are beautiful and Doug and Louise keep the place immaculate. Our favorite part of each day was sitting down and eating their five-course breakfast. It was easily the best breakfast either of us had eaten in years. We are both Vegetarians and they happily accomodated our dietary needs each morning. Some quick tips. Do not trust online driving directions, the exits have changed. Call Doug or Louise, they will give the best directions. If you can, get a room with a fireplace, it really added something special to our evening. The local wine and liqour store is limited, so if you want to have some nice wine, I would bring it from home. Overall we loved it, will be back, and hated to leave.

Just returned from a short stay in the Lake George area. My wife and I were looking forward to a relaxing trip to view the fall foliage and check out the area around Lake George. We were so lucky to have picked this wonderful B&B. The hospitality was so wonderful that i felt like we were friends from the beginning. We woke up in the morning to a delicious scent coming from the kitchen and had a 5 course meal both mornings of our stay. The food was amazing, the room was very comfortable, and we couldn't have felt more at home.
